In October 2021 we visited the Sunflower Orphanage in Nha Trang with lots of food and general supplies. Our team was very excited to be able to resume in-person visits after many months of COVID travel restrictions. After speaking with the caretakers, our team bought lots of supplies at local markets, then drove out to the orphanage.

Upon our arrival, the children came out to greet our team, and helped carry everything inside to the main common room. On this visit, we brought lots of fresh meats including chicken, pork, and beef, bottles of bean curd, hot sauce, peanuts, shampoo, body wash, and toothpaste. As a treat, all the children got ice cream popsicles!

This charity trip was made possible through donations from Daniel Cole, Minh Nguyen, Anh Lai, Geneva Palatini, Philip Doughty, Linh Lam, KTD Services LLC, Bichlien Nguyen, and Trong Nguyen. Thank you!!!


The Sunflower Orphanage first began taking in orphans in 1993 and is located in the heart of Nha Trang. There are large facilities and separate locations for middle school and high school students. Sunflower currently cares for about 35 orphans aged 10 to 18, plus several toddlers. The orphanage has a history of taking in street children and youths from troubled homes and coordinates its efforts with the Dai An Orphanage.
